How to Qualify

Qualifying Conditions


 Certified physicians may recommend medical marijuana only for the  treatment of a qualifying medical condition.  Under Ohio law, all of the  following are qualifying medical conditions: AIDS, amyotrophic lateral  sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, chronic traumatic  encephalopathy, Crohn’s disease, epilepsy or another seizure disorder,  fibromyalgia, glaucoma, hepatitis C, inflammatory bowel disease,  multiple sclerosis, pain that is either chronic and severe or  intractable, Parkinson’s disease, positive status for HIV,  post-traumatic stress disorder, sickle cell anemia, spinal cord disease  or injury, Tourette’s syndrome, traumatic brain injury, and ulcerative  colitis.

  The first step to become a  medical marijuana patient is to establish and maintain a bona fide  physician-patient relationship with a certified physician.


Get Registered


 Once a recommending physician has entered a patient or caregiver into  the registry, the patient/caregiver will receive an email prompting them to login to their profile in the Patient Registry. In the registry, complete your application and pay the fee.
